New Hampshire State Teacher of the Year, 2011
Angie Miller, a grade 7-12 teacher-librarian in Meredith, New Hampshire, has been working with students on integrated, authentic, and purposeful writing and research skills for fourteen years. The 2011 NH Teacher of the Year, Miller is a freelance writer, a TED speaker, and a National Geographic Teacher Fellow who believes that the classroom is always greater than its four walls. Focused on empowering youth, she believes that explicit literacy instruction helps students discover and use their voices to do good in the world. When not in the library or the classroom, Angie is raising animals and digging in the garden on her small farm, traveling, hiking, writing, and curling up with a good book.
